Johannesburgers

as seen from one perspective : 2003-2014

At odds with the perception of Johannesburg as "capital" city, where fortunes are made, is the notion of Johannesburg as home. Sundays, holidays, off-days and in-between days in central Johannesburg are colourful. For the most part they are free of the usual traffic and hustle, a quiet respite that offers a glimpse of her soft underbelly. Days for rest, laundry, worship, being human and taking Photos. There is a rhythm and a ritual that becomes community. I hope these images of Johannesburg convey and engage both the reality of social context whilst providing a place for the world of your imagination. I hope that the stories come through… of how she is without make-up, undressed on a rooftop.
